Finally, after over a year, our photographs have made it to the official Holga Inspire Website / Newletter.
We participated in a Toy Camera workshop in New York City in February last year. I have to say it was very interesting to actually take a camera apart, make changes (modification) and put it back together. We made our own "Holgamods". Toy Cameras add a certain amount of unpredictability to the images, and a certain mystique that we have always been intrigued by.
The workshop took place in the Umbrella Art Gallery in the East Village, NYC on a miserable gray and cold weekend in February, and was conducted by Tammy Cromer-Campbell a photographer who has shot documentary projects with a Holga camera.
All in all it was a very fun, mysterious and creative weekend, with lousy light, good food and way too cold.
